More About Ambassador by William Alexander
 
 
 
Overview
Gabe Fuentes is in for the ride of his life when he becomes Earth's ambassador to the galaxy in this alien sci-fi adventure from the National Book Award-winning author of Goblin Secrets.
Gabe Fuentes is reading under the covers one summer night when he is interrupted by a creature who looks like a purple sock puppet. The sock puppet introduces himself as the Envoy and asks if Gabe wants to be Earth's ambassador to the galaxy. What sane eleven-year-old could refuse?
Some ingenious tinkering with the washing machine sends Gabe's "entangled" self out to the center of the galaxy. There he finds that Earth is in the path of a destructive alien force--and Gabe himself is the target of an assassination plot. Exactly who wants him out of the way? And why?
Back home, Gabe discovers that his undocumented immigrant parents are in danger of being deported. Can Gabe survive long enough to solve two sets of "alien" problems? He runs for his life, through Minneapolis and outer space, in this fast-paced adventure from a National Book Award-winning author.
"Physics lovers will enjoy this clever series opener--but so will those who enjoy comedy, politics, diplomacy or strange-looking aliens" (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).
